Having taken the advice of the Eparchial College of Consultors, the Eparchy has decided to elevate Very Rev. Laurence Foote OP to the rank of Archimandrite.

This rank is reserved for monks who have attained high respect amongst the faithful over a long period of time.

Fr. Laurence Foote has been serving in our Eparchy for over 33 years. He knows our Ukrainian Catholic Church. He studied Eastern Spirituality in Rome and has applied it here in Australia.

He is, at the same time, one of Australia’s best-known University chaplains.
